Good book on the Australian wine industry, especially in the boom cycle of the "parkerized" era.
Title does not really apply to the contents of the book, but Campbell does convey the characters and scions of the wine producing industry in Australia during their highs and lows. The book is really a history of the beginnings and boom times of Australian wine and also about various wineries.
